The 3e adventure and the 4e update of it are reviewed at 5 or 4 stars respectively on RPG Now, the main retailer for the adventure.
“The adventure offers more than one ending – it is truly an adventure driven by player choices, some of which are going to be tough choices. I am so looking forward to the next installment, but this one will be hard to top.” — From a six-star review of the 4e version, by Jack99.
“Again, choosing who to help and who to fight is going to have direct bearing on what encounters the Characters experience, and ultimately will decide the fate of the forest. That fate will affect the spread of the Ragesian Empire and therefore have repercussions in later adventures along the War of the Burning Sky Campaign Arc.” — From an A- review of the 4e version by NEUROGLYPH.
“What happens while you’re in the forest? The first encounter sets the tone of high moral drama. The party comes across the burnt bodies of refugees endlessly dying, kept alive by the same magic that keeps the burning trees alive. After that, there’s an encounter or two with creatures that one would expect (a fire mephit, a hell hound) and normal forest creatures that have acquired a template that allows them to survive in these hostile environs. (That clerics can turn these templated creatures should be foreshadowed in some way, as its not apparent to look at them that they count as fire creatures and as undead for turning purposes.) The early encounters set the feeling of encountering the strange and fantastic that makes for an exciting few weeks at the gaming table. …
The devil wants to cut a deal. But author Jacob Driscoll has anticipated that many tables will regard accepting such an offer to be foolhardy. So the devil is patient; after all, the PCs are in a burning forest! And, if forced to it, this is the perfect opportunity to toy with its food. And another offer for an alliance comes in that’s designed to be so ham-fisted as to put most players’ back up, but still fits its character as the trapped, frustrated spirit that fuels the fire. Even better, there’s at least two others that want the party to accomplish different goals too.” — From a review by ENWorld Poster roguerouge.
